Letters to the Editor

Congress elected to do our will -- so why doesn't it?

What is it with these Democrats? We now import 70 percent of the oil we use, yet there is a lot of oil in this country. Most Americans are of the opinion to drill for this oil, however this is controlled by Congress.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has vowed that she will not let any discussion or vote on this matter. Harry Reid, majority leader of the Senate, has vowed the same.

Why is it that these two misguided souls can control legislation that affects us all? Isn't Congress supposed to respond to the wishes of the people? Why is it up to these two people to decide for all of us? What is their purpose?

Perhaps it is time that they heard from all of us.
